I've had family and friends come in to town numerous times over the years, and America's Best Inn is the only hotel in the area where they've never had a negative experience. The staff is courteous, professional and more than accommodating. The... More

I didn't dare open either one of them. I didn't even bring my bags inside with the fear that I was going to take a roach... More

Locals to Carbondale will tell you not to stay at this hotel, because it is not safe. There are people congregating all over the place. I made reservations as this was the only hotel with rooms. The internet said that you could cancel at any time at no cost. I called to cancel 24 hours before and they charged me... More

The room given to us was spotless very clean. The staff clean my room each day we were there which wasn't necessary. The rooms are updated with newer carpet etc. Also had fridge and microwave which was very much appreciated since we stayed for multiple nights.

When we walked into our room, we were overwhelmed by the smell of disinfectant or bug spray, not sure which. The pillows (3) were about an inch thick and then we noticed that the smoke detector was missing with a bare wire hanging from the ceiling.
